From the Test Kitchen

This quiche is packed with colorful summer veggies, including tender squash and fresh corn. To keep it moist and fluffy, we’re stirring ricotta into the filling, also brightened up by fresh basil. Our side salad of cucumbers, sunflower seeds, and golden piquante peppers—a tangy-sweet pickled variety with a vivid orange color—completes the meal on a gourmet note.
